Natick, MA, and Santa Barbara, CA – March 14, 2023 – MathWorks, the leading developer of mathematical computing software, and Green Hills Software, the worldwide leader in embedded software safety and security, announced an integration that helps engineers design safety-related applications for the Infineon AURIX™ TC4x family of automotive microcontrollers using Simulink®. Engineers using the new family of microcontrollers automate compiling and building code generated by Embedded Coder® using Green Hills Software’s support for AURIX, and then perform back-to-back testing using processor-in-loop (PIL) simulation.
“Electric vehicles and automated driving systems have disrupted conventional norms and introduced a generational change in the pace and scope of automotive electronics development,” said Tom Erkkinen, Product Manager, Embedded Code Generation at MathWorks. “Green Hills is a leading embedded software vendor that we collaborate with to provide highly automated tools and workflows that comply with rigorous functional safety standards, such as ISO 26262.”
Businesses manage hardware and software complexities with modern software development techniques, including virtual simulation and automated deployment. With this integration, automotive engineers move quickly from algorithm design to production deployment, knowing that the enabling tools from MathWorks and Green Hills Software support major safety standards. The ability to validate use cases, test algorithms, and automatically generate embedded software has the potential to improve organizations’ time-to-market.
“Many of our customers use MathWorks products to create algorithms for embedded systems,” said Rob Redfield, Director, Business Development at Green Hills Software. “Now, these customers not only have an easy-to-use way to run and verify these algorithms on embedded processors, but they also can debug, analyze, and optimize their code with safety-qualified optimizing C/C++ compilers and run-time libraries within the Green Hills MULTI® IDE.”
This is the latest collaboration between MathWorks and Green Hills Software. These capabilities extend the collaboration between MathWorks and Green Hills Software that in 2021 generated the MULTI® Toolbox for Embedded Coder, offered by Green Hills, enabling engineers to quickly and efficiently develop and deploy their Simulink and MATLAB® models on a wide range of embedded processors.
“The collaboration between MathWorks and Green Hills Software is a major step forward to accelerate the development of safety-critical applications using the AURIX™ TC4x family,” said Thomas Schneid, Senior Director Software, Partner and Ecosystem management at Infineon Technologies AG. “MathWorks and Green Hills Software are two important partners that successfully support our customers in their developments.”
